Join Allegheny Land Trust for this event!
Participants in this workshop will learn about the variety
of wetlands and the amazing resources that they have to offer during the
morning session including hands-on activities. In the afternoon Naturalist,
April Claus will review the basics for identifying reptile and amphibian
species most common to these wetland habitats and present more about the unique
history of the site and the 10 year effort to restore these two small wetlands
by concerned members of the community. The group will visit the nearby restoration
site and learn how easy it is to create a wetland habitat of their own. Fern
Hollow staff will discuss the resources, equipment and materials necessary to
create or restore a viable wetland. Visitors to the site will be encouraged to
use dip nets and microscopes to examine the aquatic biota currently living in
the newly restored wetland habitat.
